Uhh Russell's a 2 and he's a lock top 5 pick
|1 week 3 days ago||Too bad Clark made such a bad||
Too bad Clark made such a bad decision. That night cost him a few rounds a lot of money.
|1 week 5 days ago||Look I love John Beilein as||
Look I love John Beilein as much as the next guy, but this year was a wake up call. We won't go from fringe-NIT squad to national title contender without a blue chip addition.

Not sure if trolling but home field is generally worth 3ish points
|3 weeks 6 days ago||No. He will go to one of the||
No. He will go to one of the school's he's been considering, and probably still Florida.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Signing Day is in less than||
Signing Day is in less than two weeks. It's wishful thinking to believe we can reel in 12+ guys late. I'm expecting 6-8 and hoping for 10.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Well it's nice to be excited||
Well it's nice to be excited about Doyle, but why be such a hardo about it?

Dave Brandon is gone, which reopens Michigan State as a night game option.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||For a program like Miami that||
For a program like Miami that struggles filling its stadium and lacks the boosters and donations of a program like Michigan, the extra money may actually make sense.

My blind faith in Harbaugh extends to assuming he can get any knuckleheads in line
|10 weeks 13 hours ago||Yes||
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Stretch four infers the man||
Stretch four infers the man can stretch the defense with his jump shot. So.... stretch four he is not.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||IF true, Harbaugh reaching||
IF true, Harbaugh reaching out and saying that to a friend/teammate is certainly a bad sign. All the rest seems to be nonsense. Michigan is competing with his heart, not a particular NFL situation, and the university will toss the keys to everything about the program to him.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||I agree. Once all the scouts||
I agree. Once all the scouts take a deep dive into his film this year, all his 1st round projections will drop. He seems to be quite a boom or bust type prospect to me. I expect he either puts it together and is an impact player within two or three years or is out of the league within five.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Ohh. Yeah||
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Obligatory||
Give me THESE. Touch up the collar and piping to be a little more modern and these are the best. Black shoes and socks would also be cool.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Lame. Give me||
Lame. Give me this:
4:00 ET - TCU @ Florida State
8:00 ET - Baylor @ Ohio State
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Why? We ran zone blocking||
Why? We ran zone blocking this season. If your argument is on QB then it's relevant to say it's looking bleak in any system. Hoke was brutal as a coach, but the cupboard is not bare like it was upon Carr's exit.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Given the difficulty of||
Given the difficulty of conference and the challenges to become nationally elite, Mullen absolutely blows Schiano out of the water. Also Mullen doesn't have an absolute disaster stop in the NFL .
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I know there have been||
I know there have been reports, but I refuse to give in to such dark thoughts.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I don't care for Cowherd (SVP||
I don't care for Cowherd (SVP & Russillo blow the Herd outta the water), but you gotta respect his hustle. Cowherd got a nation of Wolverines to mobilize on message boards, listen to his show, and follow him on Twitter. Now let's get back to listening actual Michigan insiders like Sam Webb and ignoring non-story leaks from the national media.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||He obviously has the raw||
He obviously has the raw talent to make in the league, but his hands and "motor" need work. As cliche as words like motor are, Funchess has looked disengaged for weeks. We know he's been nicked up for most of the season, but I was very disappointed by how little it all mattered to him. Also, the wins are just a statistic or whatever quote was a weird look for him. I love him, hope he stays, but stay or go I'm just not sure he has that fire in him you need to be an impact player in the NFL.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I could be wrong, but this||
I could be wrong, but this smells like a smokescreen. If it's not Harbaugh or Miles, I would expect a McElwain/Riley type hire from a minor program.
|13 weeks 13 hours ago||If "Michigan football" HAS to||
If "Michigan football" HAS to be under-center power running we'll never be great again. Building a program strategy like it's 15+ years ago is insane. Not to mention "Pro-style" is a myth, the elite offenses are mostly passing spreads in the NFL.
|13 weeks 14 hours ago||Dude.||
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Those two programs also have||
Those two programs also have huge geographical advantages over a Nebraska. Michigan falls somewhere in the middle and should be capable of an occasional playoff berth under the right staff.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Can Les Miles win without 10||
Can Les Miles win without 10 elite athletes from Louisiana every year? He's had top 5 talent every season at LSU. Our recruiting rankings may look shiny, but the speed and NFL talent on his defenses has been unparalleled for a decade.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Cool way for a walk on to||
Cool way for a walk on to graduate, be a part of the team, and maybe play at a small school as a 5th year senior
|14 weeks 6 days ago||He's a nice kid and a decent||
He's a nice kid and a decent college center. He will not make it to the next level. He could play in lesser European leagues, sure, but he also strikes me as a guy that doesn't want to play basketball forever and has ambitions outside of sports. With that said, we could have used him this year, and he'll be a solid rotation player for the Gators.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Not really, but he is an NBA||
Not really, but he is an NBA wing. The thought of GR3 playing some 2 is much more imaginable than playing the 4 with responsibility of guarding the Blake Griffin's of the world and rebounding consistently. Obviously he's a 3 first and foremost, but these days the perimeter is much more properly delineated as point guards, combo guards, wings, and stretch forwards than the traditional positions anyway.
